Clients rely on Alexander to handle litigations, arbitrations, and inquiries from state and federal regulators involving the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Federal Trade Commission Act, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, the Gramm-Leach Bliley Act, and state data breach notification, data protection and disposal, and unfair and deceptive acts and practices laws. He also has extensive experience representing clients in disputes before FINRA and AAA and in state and federal court in connection with breach of contract claims, whistleblower retaliation claims, breach of non-compete agreements, claims involving liquidated damages clauses, and discrimination claims.
